With its superior insulation package, heat transfer systems, and a large Sunspace Collector, the basic Home achieves a HERS rating of near 50, making it eligible for at least a $4,000 Colorado Energy Saver credit on a mortgage.
Note that the designs shown below were worked up as an exercise to achieve a solar design acceptable to the Architectural Control Committee (not an easy exercise in this subdivision). A main floor master design is also possible as are many permutations having similar exteriors. Our desire is to build a Zer Energy Home. We are open to discussing design possibilities with interested parties.
